Timoteij is a Swedish ethnopop group established in 2008. The group originally consisted of four women, Cecilia Kallin, Bodil Bergström, Elina Thorsell and Johanna Pettersson, all born in 1991. Pettersson left the group in 2014.


Timoteij participated in the Swedish Melodifestivalen 2010 with their debut single "Kom" written by Karl Eurén, Gustav Eurén and Niklas Arn. "Kom" finished first in the third semi-final of "Melodifestivalen"[1][2] and fifth in the national final.

They participated again in Melodifestivalen 2012 with their single "Stormande hav". However, they failed to make it to the finals. In Spring 2014, Johanna Pettersson left the group to focus on a dancing career.

In 2015 Bodil, Elina and Cecilia, along with Cecilia's brother Charles Kallin performed as backup singers and guitarists for fellow Swedish singer Erika Selin in Eurosong 2015 with "Break Me Up", coming third overall in the Final 5.
